not with a metal zone. I had that pedal, and it simply cant get a classic marshall tone out of it IMO.

Well... I think the best you can probably do is probably get something like a Marshall in a box type of overdrive pedal to hold you off whilst undergoing and entire rig revamping. New guitar, new amp.

I remember getting real close to a classic rock tone with the MT-2 a few times but someone screwed up my settings when i was away from it

definately look into a valve driven distortion unit (check out rocktron). it will give you a more similar type of distortion and harmonic saturation. furthermore, there will be more "feel" to be had than a cheaper pedal/amp combo

It's a good pedal, but i agree that it's more suitable for high-gain distortion than classic Marshall tones.

That said, try this on your MT-2 Metal Zone:
- neutralize the EQ (set the EQ knobs halfway);
- set the Level knob to 5 (halfway);
- set the Dist knob to 6,5 (a little past halfway).

Then, on the amp, set:
- treble to 4,5
- middle and bass to 7.

Hope it helps!

if youre broke, dont worry too much about the nuance of your tone. get a tone that is close enough and let your playing do the work. Getting really good tone tends to (though there are RARE exceptions) cost a decent amount of cash
